At Google worldwide, there are always new activities for the communities we work with and at Google MENA, we try to keep up the pace. From g|days to Google Developer Group meetups, to the Google Apps Developer Challenge (hurry and get your submissions in!), we are always looking for ways to engage with people who are as passionate about technology as we are. For our developers in MENA, we have some good news: registration is now open for the Google Tech Workshop – Tunisia 2012.


The Tech Workshop will take place at the City of Sciences in Tunis on September 22 and 23, and we are looking for the best and brightest developers, programmers and tech geeks from Tunisia to join and learn about topics we love: Google App Engine, Google APIs, Mobile Development, HTML5, Google Web Toolkit, Google Webmaster Tools, Arabic Web Content, User Experience, and Product Development & Design. We’ll post the full agenda soon so check back for event updates and Google+ posts.

To make these sessions as useful as possible, they will be hands-on and interactive, so bring your laptops. As usual, space is limited and we’ll invite those with the best applications, so register now and we will inform you of the status of your application by September 10.

The Google Tech Workshop isn’t just about us, though! I can’t wait to meet the tech community in Tunisia and learn about your projects, so please share what you are working on, using the #gtwtunisia hashtag. If you have submitted an entry for the Google Apps Developer Challenge, and it reaches semi-finals, you’ll have an opportunity to present your work at the Google Tech Workshop.

So get ready for two technology-packed days, and I look forward to seeing you in Tunis!
